Artist in South West London, UK
Lucy Freud is a London based artist with an international following. Whether it’s abstract, figurative, painting, drawing or monoprinting, her work has instant appeal.
Throughout the year Lucy runs courses from her modern, purpose-built studio in South West London. Small numbers in the classes means that this intimate gathering is treated to a personal and hands on approach from this experienced artist. Beginners are welcome.

My son had fallen out of love with art after a difficult time at school when art pressurized and associated with exams. Lucy was recommended by a friend and as we drove along to her studio for the first time. He protested mightily but after his lesson, he said ‘Thank you for pushing me to do that, I really enjoyed it’ so Lucy helped him find art again. He’s been to see her almost every week since then and always comes out in a better place.
He has always produced some wonderful drawings and paintings and has learnt so much. Lucy is helping him with his art GCSE but most importantly she is helping him progress as an artist and a young man. I can’t recommend her enough.
I have been painting with Lucy for the last two years, she is an excellent teacher and an inspiration. Would highly recommend her art classes.
I really enjoy Lucys art classes – she explains in detail but in an easy to understand way. I have learnt so much from her – she is a fabulous artist but takes time to explain & help those of us who are not so talented. She pushes me into areas which challenge me. I have done drawing, acrylic, painting and watercolours with Lucy, I love her style of teaching, she’s extremely patient, explains very simply when things need to change and has masses of enthusiasm for other peoples paintings.
